GW Topology Seminar

This year I will be organising the Greater (George) Washington Topology Seminar. This seminar is meant to serve everyone who reside in the Greater Washington Area and are interested in topology. However, anyone who is keen on attending this seminar is welcome to participate, irrespective of where you are located on Planet Earth! Just send me an email at rhea underscore palak at gwu dot edu and I will ensure you receive the meeting links. The seminar will take place on Fridays from 1pm to 2pm EST. The passcode to view the recordings of previous talks is gwts@725.
